Agreed, dire...

No matter how "far out" one wants to go from the norm, the new and open-minded perception is still rooted in past knowledge and experience... for the founding fathers this was, as you said, a judeo-christian background that they could not escape while inking that parchment.

Mandojammer is calling for a take-back of the Republic... seems like what it will take is another Civil War. Except this one would have to disintegrate the big federal bureaucracy instead of being the first step for its creation.

The US is so diverse... its mighty difficult for a centralized government to address the diversity of issues all over the country. The locals know the issues of their own land better than some high-brow political type far away in D.C...

Here's a vote for local government, local energy, and local food!

Yes, skies, beyond the veil of material goods, people are quite different all over the US. I am not well traveled and old enough to tell you stories, but I am quite aware that an American from Georgia is going to be noticeably different than an American from Massachusetts.

That makes me think, though, that people who live in the big cities all over the country are more similar to each other than to their own statesmen, who are living in the countryside.

In France, do people have different lawnmowers in the South as compared to the North?

I bet there are chain stores that are found all over your country which all sell the same products at the same low prices and people buy them because it is what they can afford. Is it not so?

So, in France, a persons curtains define their philosophy ?
How sad.

Edsel : my summer curtains are tuquoise blue with sunny yellow ,and my winter wcurtains are silky purple . Lots of french curtains ae white lace . I did notice americans have sort of heavy curtains ,and carpettings . Here ,we see more wooden floors . It's more a cultural than philosophical habit . As for uniformed sam suburbians houses ,we see them all over now in France too ,and its a bit soulless looking to me . Concret and asphalt are cheeper materials than stone and wood , and it's getting culturally accepted nowadays .As for "modern architecture" ,it's too beurk to even talk about it .Same with so called modern arts . Hippies are the last moderns with good taste ,and I still always appreciate psychadelics arts .
